About CivicGeorgia

A Community Empowerment Practice

CivicGeorgia is a BIPOC-led advocacy organization striving to amplify the voice, frequency, and impact of community-led efforts for progress. We are uniquely powered by a collaborative of grassroots organizers who lead a coalition of communities, movements, and organizations around our state. Since 2017, we have acted to achieve equity & justice through & in civic engagement. 

Our Focus

We are dedicated to civic participation by and voice for everyone in our state, with intentional inclusivity for our most silenced communities- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Georgians, our unhoused sisters and brothers, immigrant and refugee families, adopted people, LGBTQ+ folx, people of varying ability and neurodiversity statuses & identities, young people, seniors, currently and formerly incarcerated people, intersectional communities, and the many of us who are ‘othered’.

Our Approach

We are especially recognized for our creative & partnership-based approaches to unlocking and expanding the capacity for civic action in our communities -- for near-term impact and long-term power-building. Through these efforts we have helped register & mobilized tens of thousands of Georgians to vote and empowered even more Georgians in civic participation. 

 

CivicGeorgia was selected to serve as Georgia's State Captain for the record-breaking National Voter Registration Day 2020 and was a co-founding and/or anchor partner for Power the Polls 2020, Vote Early Day 2020, and Party at the Mailbox Atlanta.
